Summer learning challenge day 1 week 1

Three facts i found interesting about Maui


1. I found it interesting that Maui fished up the north island and his waka became the south island.

2. I find it interesting how cunning and mischievous Maui was when he hid away on the boat and used his own blood instead of bait.

3. Karakia are Maori incantations and prayers, used to invoke spiritual guidance and protection. Karakia are generally used to increase the spiritual goodwill of a gathering, so as to increase the likelihood of a favorable outcome. Maui used a karakia to summon a big fish and also strengthen his line and man did he catch a big fish.

curious new zealanders

We are apart of an experiment to see just how connected new Zealanders are.
We have to write a letter to an New Zealander of our choice.then we have to pass the letter on to a random person with the instruction to pass it on to someone who might know the person whom the letter is addressed.

Image result for rhys darbyI have chosen Rhys Darby as my curious new Zealander because 
he is easily my favorite NZ comedian/ actor and i look up to him as my idol. I am going to first give my letter to Mr Wood because Mr wood could give is to Jake miller and Jake miller would be able to get it to him or at least know someone who can get it to him.

Tin foil boat challenge

today we got set a challenge to make a floating device out of tin foil. it had to float and be able to carry as many marbles as possible with out sinking the person with the boat that could hold he most marbles with out sinking would win my group had an idea to go with a sombrero shaped boat it would create an air pocket that would support buoyancy this is the results of our sombrero .

i think the major weakness of this degsign was the fact that the boat was very flimsy and i think we can improve this by folding the tin foil in half making it stronger.
